Hans Dagelet is the Captain. He growls, hisses, spits and shreds the translated lyrics. Rosa plays the boldly arranged music. Bluesrock, psychedelics and derailed punk: overwhelming music. The reason for this homage is the earth-shifting album Trout Mask Replica by Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band, released in 1969. An album with which Beefheart baffled friend and foe. The music was too extreme for a large audience, but did make him a legend. The gritty poetry of both language and music sounds as new and stimulating today as it did then. The music of Trout Mask Replica has been turned inside out, translated and rephrased. The Captain’s anarchist chaos has been retained but at the same time been unraveled, making it accessible to a new audience. Beefheart, Pork Treat Musical will have the seasoned Beefheart fan jubilate and will leave the Beefheart newbie pleasantly bewildered. Enthusiastic reviews of Rosa’s previous Beefheart project: ‘The arrangements are pleasantly irreverent. Brilliant is the idea to put music to Beefheart quotes from Anton Corbijn’s film portrait Some YoYo Stuff’ (de Volkskrant). ‘A phenomenal Beefheart tribute. For their arrangements of Beefheart’s music, the Rosa Ensemble has even adapted his lyrics in Dutch. This has been done very ingeniously, preserving original alliterations and meanings’ (de Volkskrant).
